Got To Love Myself First ....

It is not just any year, it is THE YEAR. This year is a major year, I will be turning 50 this year and I just graduated with a degree in Network Security.

Here is a little about me, I am a 49 woman who has went through some major life changes. I have been through a lifetime of abuse, I have been through a job loss, divorce after 24 years, I have four kids, they have all moved out now.

It is not just any year, it is THE YEAR. This year is a major year, I will be turning 50 this year and I just graduated with a degree in Network Security.

Here is a little about me, I am a 49 woman who has went through some major life changes. I have been through a lifetime of abuse, I have been through a job loss, divorce after 24 years, I have four kids, they have all moved out now. So the first time since I was 19 years old, I have an empty nest ! I relocated to Northern California (Feb 2012), after living up in Washington State for almost 30 years.

I am in a flux on trying to find out who I am and start caring about me for once in what seems to be like forever, since I have always been looking after everyone else and neglected my own needs and wants for so many years.

I found a good man who gives me the love I have been needing, it is such a refreshing change to have someone that holds your hand and tells you he loves you often through out the day.

I am currently job hunting for that dream job and trying build myself back up after this major life spiral that started in Fall 2006.

Also I am also an obsessed computer g33kgirl anything that has to do with computers I am all over it. I do volunteer tech support, photo-manipulation, database development and more. I was a MS Office trainer, Oracle/Unix DBA, IT Support for 15 years.

I am looking for support friends that I can encourage and they can encourage me also. I am a super nice person and very approachable, I talk as well as listen.

One of the things that brought me here (it was the same day I joined) was I was shopping at the mall, and I had a flashback, of when I was in great shape and how I could wear the cutest clothes.

** Update ** : I am engaged! With a February wedding pending, I need to look good in my wedding dress!!

Okay that is enough for now ... gotta go do my Sparkpeople Tracking :)
